Introducing quantum theory by J. P McEvoy( Book )

36 editions published between 1996 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Quantum theory confronts us with bizarre paradoxes which contradict the logic of classical physics. At the subatomic level, one particle seems to know what the others are doing, and according to Heisenberg's "uncertainty principle", there is a limit on how accurately nature can be observed. And yet the theory is amazingly accurate and widely applied, explaining all of chemistry and most of physics. "Introducing Quantum Theory" takes us on a step-by-step tour with the key figures, including Planck, Einstein, Bohr, Heisenberg and Schrodinger. Each contributed at least one crucial concept to the theory. The puzzle of the wave-particle duality is here, along with descriptions of the two questions raised against Bohr's "Copenhagen Interpretation"--The famous "dead and alive cat" and the EPR paradox. Both remain unresolved
Stephen Hawking for beginners by J. P McEvoy( Book )

28 editions published between 1995 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 641 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stephen Hawking is the best-known theoretical physicist alive today but few people outside his field know what he has done. To the public at large he is a legendary figure of tragic dimensions - a brilliant scientist and author of the phenomenal bestseller, A Brief History of Time - and yet confined to a wheelchair, unable to speak or write." "Hawking has mastered the two great theories of physics from this century, Einstein's General Theory of Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. He has made breath-taking discoveries about where these theories break down or overlap, such as the edge of a Black Hole or the Big Bang origin of the Universe. Here is the perfect beginner's guide to Hawking's work including his present research into Quantum Gravity."--Jacket

"Richard Appignanesi goes on a personal quest of Existentialism in its original state. He begins with Camus' question of suicide: 'Must life have a meaning to be lived?' Is absurdity at the heart of Existentialism? Or is Sartre right: is Existentialism 'the least scandalous, most technically austere' of all teachings?"--Publisher's web site
Introducing Melanie Klein by R. D Hinshelwood( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and held by 257 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Melanie Klein was a pioneer in child psychoanalysis, who developed several groundbreaking concepts in the study of infant and early child development." "Although a Freudian, Klein's highly controversial opinions often brought her into conflict with the psychoanalytic movement, and with Anna Freud in particular. However, her work on depression and paranoid schizophrenia, which caused much upset at the time, is now in common use with psychoanalysts and academics in other fields of the human sciences."--Jacket

8 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in English and held by 156 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Machiavelli for beginners by Patrick Curry( Book )

8 editions published between 1995 and 2007 in English and Chinese and held by 126 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

""Machiavellian" is a popular byword for treachery and opportunism. Machiavelli's classic book on statecraft, The Prince, published over 400 years ago, remains controversial to this day because of its electrifying frankness as a practical guide to power. Is it a how-to manual for dictators, a cynical philosophy of "the end justifies the means", or a more complex and subtle analysis of successful government?" "Machiavelli was a loyal servant of the Florentine Republic. His opposition to Medici despotism resulted in his torture on the rack and exile. Yet he chose as his model for the Prince the most notorious tyrant, Cesare Borgia. Introducing Machiavelli traces the colorful life of this paradoxical realist whose clear-sighted patriotism made him the first truly modern political scientist. Machiavelli is seen as central to the postmodern debate on Civil Society."--Jacket
